Flourished Snowflake Cards

Hi there!  It’s Suzanne today with a series of Christmas cards using one of my digital cutting files (Flourished Snowflake) and silver vinyl. The part of these cards that takes the most time is weeding out the excess vinyl, but the product is awesome! To create some variety (really, just for my own amusement!) I switched the colours of the layers, but always kept the silver cardstock as the same layer.
Designer Tip:  You could easily make the snowflakes smaller as the vinyl would hold the fine lines.

Here is how you make these cards.
Flourished Snowflake  Silhouette Design Store #164059
SilhouetteAdhesive Vinyl in Silver
SihouetteTransfer Tape
Silhouette Cameo
Bazzill Cardstock in Navajo and Turquoise Mist
Bazzill Foil Cardstock in Silver
TombowMono Dots Adhesive
Tombow3D Foam Tabs


1.       Form a 6 x 6” tent fold card base from Navajo cardstock. 

2.       Cut a 4.5” square panel of coordinating cardstock.  Cut a 1/8” larger mat for this panel from silver foil cardstock and adhere together.

3.       Cut Flourished Snowflake from silver vinyl (blade depth 1) and weed all the negative spaces out. Since the vinyl is 9" wide, I duplicated the image and fit 7 snowflakes in a 12" long strip.

4.       Use Transfer Paper to place the snowflake in the middle of the smallest panel and burnish into place. (You can reuse the transfer paper many times.) Adhere this panel to the card front with foam adhesive.


I hope this gives you some ideas for creating your own snowflake cards! 
Happy cutting! Suzanne
